Here is my list of 5 tasks I wanted to accomplish today.1. Memorize 6 studies for the psychology test 2. Find at least one black pen that works 3. Clean room 4. Put away laundry 5. Get 7 hours of sleep
Hmm...2/5. I'll try again tomorrow. I don't even care because today was so amazing I feel like I am floating on the whipped cream atop an old-fashioned strawberry milkshake with a striped straw. Yep. That good.
Prayers are answered in ways we don't expect. I've heard that all my life, but never have I experienced it more fully than today. Up until now, I haven't had to make a whole lot of hard decisions. They've always been between bad and good or good and good. Both situations impossible to mess up. Now I have been faced with the task of choosing between good and better. Even harder, it has often been unclear exactly what choice was good and what was better.
I have had to throw up my hands and give up control, something I struggle with. I am very independent, so it was hard to let go and trust that everything would work out how it was supposed to. Through some experiences in this last little while, I have come to an unshakable knowledge that my Heavenly Father has an exact plan designed specifically for me. He knows the difference between good and better. He was directed my choices. He has revealed solutions to unsolvable problems.
My priorities completely shifted today. I saw a glimpse of the long-term plan for my life. I don't know what lies ahead or what road to take, but He does. Prayers are often answered in unexpected ways, but the outcome is always better than we could have envisioned, even if it doesn't seem like it right away.
